If these two puppies aren't trouble, I don't know what is. They are the remaining siblings of the four puppies rescued from Anishnabe. It's pretty obvious the first two adopted were the goodie two-shoes of the family who will grow up to be loyal and obedient dogs and these two are the evil twins who will grow up to be graffiti artists.

Don't say I didnt' warn you.

The best way to check on the adoption status of this dog (and other dogs and cats and other small domestic animals) is to visit Toronto Animal Services or call 416 338 6668 for the Toronto Animal Services South shelter.

  1. Reminds me of the new Britney Spears song: "Mamma I'm love with a criminal..."

    Think you nailed 'em, Fred. Look at that last shot of feigned innocence.
    Me, I always wanted to grow up to be a graffiti artist. I look for any sign of sincere obedience in myself and try to stomp it out. But I'm Canadian so it's hard sometimes. You understand.
    Great work!

  5. We just scooped up the little girl in the red collar today - she's a DOLL!

    It's been 4 days since we adopted the puppy formerly known as the grafitti artist -- and I cannot believe how utterly wonderful she is. With the exception of one accident her first morning with us, she is fully housebroken, sits and stays on command, crates like a pro and sleeps through the night - not bad for an 8 week old, eh? She is affectionate, whip smart, and so eager to please she indulged my daughter's need to dress her in a Santa outfit. She is going to be the star of the puppy class! We are completely in love with this seemingly perfect pup. Our cats, otoh, not so impressed. So thank you, thank you, thank you for your tireless efforts - we would not have found her otherwise.

The reason for this blog is to help get specific dogs adopted from TAS but equally important is to try to normalize the idea of shelter dogs being just as good and just as desirable as any other dogs including those which are regularly merchandised by backyard breeders, puppy millers and those few remaining pet store owners who still feel a need to sell live animals. The single greatest stigma shelter animals still face is the belief that shelter animals are substandard animals. Anyone who has had enough experience with shelter animals knows this is untrue but the general public hasn't had the same experiences you've had. They see a nice dog photo in a glossy magazine and too many of them would never think of associating that dog with a dog from a shelter. After all, no one abandons perfectly good dogs, right? Unfortunately, as we all know, perfectly good dogs are abandoned all the time.

The public still too often associates shelter dogs with images of beat up, sick, dirty, severely traumatized animals and while we definitely sometimes see victims such as these, they are certainly not the majority and, regardless, even the most abused animals can very often be saved and made whole again.

Pound Dogs sometimes discusses the sad histories some of the dogs have suffered. For the most part, though, it tries to present the dogs not as victims but as great potential family members. The goal is to raise the profiles of animals in adoption centers so that a potential pet owner sees them as the best choice, not just as the charity choice.

So, here's the favour I'm asking. Whenever you see a dog picture on these pages you think is decent enough, I'd like you to consider sharing it on Facebook or any other social media sites you're using (I know many of you do this already and thank you for that). And when you share it, please mention that the dog in the photo is a shelter dog like so many other shelter dogs waiting for a home. If we can get even five percent of the pet buying public to see shelter dogs differently, to see how beautiful they are and how wonderful they are, and to consider shelter dogs as their first choice for a new family member, we can end the suffering of homeless pets in this country.
